Историята на жълтите павета

"Как се е появил този керамичен паваж в центъра на столицата?
През годините са публикувани неверни сведения,
свързани с княгиня Елеонора Каролина Гаспарина Луиза,
принцеса фон Ройс цу Шлайц-Кьостриц
и втора съпруга на Фердинанд I Български от 28.02.1908 г.,
впоследствие Царица Елеонора.
"един вид подарък за сватбата на българския княз Фердинанд с госпожа Елеонора ...
а жълтите павета по "Цар Освободител" са били зестрата на княгиня Елеонора, втората съпруга на Фердинанд"
